So How Was Thanksgiving?

All in all, I was comfortably full and probably had the healthiest dinner of all of them. And now I'm still enjoying the leftovers.

Black Friday was kinda funny. I spent the day with a friend and her parents. Friend's mom (FM) is a pediatrician. There's a Celiac in her family, so she "knows everything" about Celiac and food allergies, etc. (Mmmhmm.) Friend passes everything I say/do on to her mom, and we've had meals together before; so FM is at least semi-aware. So yesterday at brunch (I ate before meeting up), FM asks if I'm still on my special diet. I said yes, forever. Forever? Forever. But you can eat turkey? Yes. She raised an eyebrow. Alrighty then. A bowl of fruit gets passed around, everyone sticking their pancake encrusted forks into the dish. Please have some fruit. No thank you; I'm not hungry. But you can have fruit? Yes, but I'm not hungry. (Especially with you digging your fork around in there.) Shopping ensues. Dinner rolls around. I honestly was not hungry and wasn't going to order something just to poke it around on a plate. I was just happy hanging out. Like a good mom, FM kept suggesting things for me to eat. But you can eat a salad or a potato. What about some broccoli? You need to eat something. Then she picked up the basket of rolls, and said, "Have bread. It's good and will fill you up." I about lost it, wanting to fall on the floor laughing. I smiled graciously at her, "No thank you. I'm really not hungry."
